congress is going to do. but it is an interesting moment that the nra is being brought to the table. that should be an encouraging sign that -- around that table there's going to be a nice balance of opinion. >> right. different voices. it's interesting, the nra claims $4.4 million was spent on congressional lobbying. the brady campaign spent $5,800. so there is a disparity in terms of the amount spent lobbying. but they all need to be around that table. there should be a happy medium. i think everyone agrees that the second amendment is there for a purpose, but let's reach a consensus on this. >> absolutely. there's no way you can have a healthy, balanced gun control debate without the nra at the table. they represent a significant part of the country. but that stat that mark kelly shared, 85% of kids killed in the world happen here in the u.s. killed by guns. i knew it was bad, but i didn't know it was that bad. >> staggering and sobering. >>> the suspected aurora theater gunman james holmes acted bizarrely in the moments after the shooting, according to detectives who questioned
the nra and even harry reid questions whether it can pass congress. how hard would you push for assault weapons ban, and if one cannot pass congress, what other measures would need to be included in a broad package in order to probe of gun violence successfully. >> the vice-president and a number of members of my cabinet went through a very thorough process over the past month, meeting with a lot of stakeholders, including the nra. listened to proposals from all quarters, and they have presented me now with a list of sensible, common-sense steps that can be taken to make sure the violence we saw a new town does not happen again. i will meet with the vice- president today. i expect to have a fuller presentation later in the week to give people some specifics about what i think we need to do. my starting point is not to worry about the politics. my starting point is to focus on what makes sense, what works. what should we be doing to make sure that our children are safe, that we are reducing the incidence of gun violence? i think we can do that in a sensible way that comports with the sec
know, the nra is not in line with an awful lot of their members, and that is something we're counting on to go forward. i've gone through this before. i know what the battles are going to be. i know the nra is probably already out there. you probably saw that new ad that they just put out attacking the president and his two daughters. that's crazy. everybody knows that the president and his family have to be protected. but to try to push that over on to the, their probably most radical members of the nra, that's now how the general public feels. i believe we can do it. this time it is different. this time it's gone to the heart of every mother, father, gra grandparent thinking about their children, grandchildren. we have to do something. all these mass killings and the killings that happen every single day, as the president said, 900 people have died since the day that sandy hook happened. that's too many of our people. i'm speaking as a nurse. it's cost us over $200 billion a year for those that survive. and for everything that we need to do to protect our cities and our communities.
lapierre executive vice president of the nra issues a fundraising letter saying this. i warned you this day was coming and now it's here. it's not about protecting your children. it's not about stopping crime. it's about banning your guns period. so what are we seeing here? a real political campaign. >> on the one side you have the grassroots organization that the obama for america team use. now, they can't coordinate with the white house, wolf, on this, but they are using all of their apparatus to get out their grass root supporters because what they are trying to do is mobilize voters in much the same way that the nra has done over the years, which is make people who are for some kind of gun regulation, single issue voters and come out and pressure members of congress who may be wavering in gun states and say to them, you know, we want something done. on the other side is the nra which has a huge grassroots organization. they are trying to mobilize their own voters. you saw that e-mail. we spoke yesterday about this provocative ad talking about the president'
around this table. you should know that tomorrow i have also invited the gun owners and the nra to come and make their case, as well. >> well, to help us set the stage through all of this i want to bring in jeffrey toobin. the gun lobby says this is all about the second amendment. where is the legal line between the so-called individual right to bear arms and government responsibility to look after people? >> well, michael, i am going to give you a ringing i'm not sure to that answer because the supreme court has not really classified th clarified this. in 2008 the supreme court said there is a constitutional right under the second amendment to possess a hand gun in your home for self protection. how does that apply to larger weapons? how does it apply to weapons outside the home? how does it apply to background checks for the purchase of weapons? these are legal questions that remain open now. it is probably true that assault weapon bands would have no problems constitutionally. because the supreme court has really changed the understanding of the second amendment and people can read i

about is the guns. think about this for a second. starting the nra, a private institution which receives no tax dollars, an interest group which does not make policy, has not had sway enlisted of connecticut, but that is the group that is now being brought on television. imagine for one second that the aclu were under fire because of, i don't know, violent movies or video games. with david gregory be on national television has been a head of the aclu to back off his position. of course not. they are using this as a way to go after an institutional organization on the right and destroy it. lou: and it is interesting. you talk about the bullying, relationship between george soros and these various groups, organizing around -- i don't think most people realize this -- an international organization and interest that is focused on gun-control, not come restriction, but removing guns altogether from society. >> yes. the idea that the left loves the second amendment is alive. they can't even name the justification for the second amendment. what has changed in this country is the fundamental bas

for reinstating the assault weapons ban. but there's been fresh opposition from the nra, and even harry reid has said he questions whether it could pass congress. given that, how hard will you push for an assault weapons ban, and if one cannot bass congress, what other -- pass congress, what other measures would need to be included in order to curb gun violence successfully? >> well, as i said, the vice president and a number of members of my cabinet went through a very thorough process over the last month meeting with a lot of stakeholders in this including the nra, listened to proposals from all quarters, and they've presented me now with a list of sensible, common sense steps that can be taken to make sure that the kinds of violence we saw at newtown doesn't happen again. i'm going to be meeting with the vice president today. i expect to have a fuller presentation later in the week to give people some specifics about what i think we need to do. my starting point is not to worry about the politics, my starting point is to focus on what makes sense, what works. what should we be doing to make s

congress is cowed by the nra? >> that is pretty clear, isn't it? you know, when you grappa -- when you grow upo -- you know, it is easy to say no to an opponent or to a constituency of the other party. it is tougher to say no to a friend. to a supporter. when you get these jobs, elected to the congress or the legislature or you get elected as mayor, a measure of your oath is when you can look a friend in the eye, someone that he mostly agree with and say, i do not agree with you and you are wrong on this issue. i think the nra is wrong when they say the answer to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. when they say that teachers ought to be carrying guns in elementary schools. when they say that virtually no gun legislation is acceptable to them prepared -- to them. that is, to me, and extreme position. i would hope there are republicans and democrats who can look them in the eye and say, i'm sorry, mostly agree with you, but you are wrong puritan -- but you are wrong. i still have a few months left. i would like to continue in public life. i have a thin majority whip, majority lead
